ENDO takes the notion of the black-boxing of technology to a conceptual critique and poetic sculptural interpretation. We are offered an object â a black-cased digital recorder, equipped with various sensors â allegedly registering data from its surroundings such as sound, camera image, GPS coordinates, brightness, air pressure, humidity, and temperature on a terabyte hard drive. Once the hard drive is saturated, recording stops, and the data becomes enclosed within the object, transforming it into a monumental static artifact. ENDO is a data devouring device which yields nothing in return, and hence runs contrary to the idea that the recording and storage of data will produce additional information, or insight, or even in a time of data profiling: security. As viewers we are deprived of prying into, let alone understanding, the workings of the device before us. The maxim in data we trust is firmly put to the test. What is really happening with this information, if anything at all, becomes a matter of speculation.
